Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue loves talking about dreams because growing up in tiny Mexico, Missouri he used to be a dreamer.

He went on to play 11 years in the NBA and in his first season as a coach led the Cavs to the 2016 NBA championship.

So Lue is looking forward to participating in the Cavs’ Black Heritage Month event at Cleveland Clinic Courts Wednesday for 40 children ages 12-15 from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland.

Joining Lue will be players Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr. and George Hill, associate head coach Larry Drew and Cavs legends Austin Carr, Jim Chones, Larry Nance, Sr. and Campy Russell. Nance Jr. is an Akron native and Revere High School product and his parents still live in Richfield.

Movie clips will be used to spur conversation about dreams, goals, leadership and togetherness in what the team calls a Basketball and History Town Hall.

“I love these type of events where you’re able to get around the youth and young kids because I was a dreamer before,” Lue said before Tuesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets at Quicken Loans Arena. “A lot of people in this position have been dreamers. If you put in the hard work, if you’re a good person, you do the right thing, good things can happen. That’s the biggest thing we want to get across, the biggest point. I’m going to really enjoy tomorrow.”

With mass shootings and racial issues dominating the news, it would seem to be an important time for such an event, but Lue didn’t feel that way.

“I think just any time, any time,” he said. “Back when I was a young kid, I wish I could’ve had guys come in and speak to me and speak to my friends. But it’s something great that the Cavs organization has put together.

“I’m just excited to get around the youth and the young guys. Let them ask questions. Tell them it’s fun to dream and to have goals and set these goals and see where you’re at four, five years down the road. So, I’m excited to see these guys and be able to touch these young guys and girls and see what happens.”
